Pregnant, homeless and abused almost to death, Athena was left to die. Until now. Please help me sponsor her care! Earlier our partners, Near and Far Animal Foundation, saved this defeated pregnant stray girl off the streets of Venezuela. It was witnessed that the dog was beaten to her pregnant belly then left to die. Street animals are treated horribly in Venezuela most end up dying without help.
She was rushed to a trusted emergency veterinarian where a team of brave women went into action to try and save her life. Upon arrival doctors reported that there is NO movement in her belly but they still pushed forward with testing.
After a conclusive sonogram, Athena's fetuses are alive. We are shocked they survived the repeated beating. She is close to giving birth to at least 5 babies. They are expected to arrive within a week. We are worried that she will also be erhlichia positive as most street dogs are plagued with this tick borne disease that causes anemia. She will need around the clock care to stabilize her enough for her delivery. This will take hundreds of dollars for rescuers!
I created a portrait of Athena and the Save Athena items to help me sponsor her care! With every custom Save Athena product you can help NAFAF save this very brave pregnant momma!
